8. A pair of raw Kicking Mule Workshop jeans, your choice of model (1950, 1980, or Rocker) and size, from the guys at Context ( www.contextclothing.com ). This is a $275 value, and a great way to get some great jeans and support a good cause at the same time.

We are not a registered charity. We are giving to a registered charity as a community, but I don't think that we have the logistical capabilities of giving individual receipts.

Paypal would be fine.

How will we know about our tickets? I just made a donation so should I get a number or will I just be informed when/if I win something?

Also, I think it would be great to know the final total and see how generous SF as a community is.

You will know if you win something. Man, you must think that we are organized or something.

We are currently at $1200 (- paypal fees. Keep on going, guys!)

It means you get to pick first from the collection. Even before it has arrived in stores.

Cheers,

Fok.

Context has donated a pair of Kicking Mule Workshop jeans of your choice. Also, for one day only, for every $10 you donate, including raffle tickets, Connemara will be timed out another hour!

(see thread in general for details)

We are at close to $1700. Let's make it $2K...

We get to buy it ahead of time? Or we get one item from their new season? Sorry I am just confused.
